3 Mistakes 1st Time Kentucky Derby Bettors Make

2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic Odds & Picks

The 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic odds are out and I have a trio of the most talked about picks for the huge race. The big race is this Saturday, November 3rd at 5:44 PM ET from the famed Churchill Downs. You can watch the race on NBC and stream it via NBC Sports Live.

2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic Odds & Picks

  • Accelerate +350
  • McKinzie +450
  • Catholic Boy +700
  • West Coast +700
  • Mind Your Biscuits +850
  • Mendelssohn +1000
  • Roaring Lion +1400
  • Yoshida +1800
  • Thunder Snow +2000
  • Collected +3300
  • Discreet Lover +3500
  • Pavel +4000
  • Gunnevera +4000
  • Bravazzo +5500
  • Seeking The Soul +5500
  • Axelrod +6600
  • Toast of New York +10000

2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic Favorite: Accelerate +350

On paper, Accelerate looks like a seriously difficult racehorse to beat. Unfortunately for Accelerate and his connections, races aren’t run on paper. Speed ratings can vary wildly from track to track, which is why handicappers shouldn’t put so much emphasis on Accelerate’s speed ratings.

Outside of the speed ratings, there are other reasons not to back the chalk. For starters, he’s never raced at Churchill Downs. Not only that he’s never won outside of California. Accelerate’s a huge play against to win the BC Classic on Saturday.

Breeders’ Cup Classic Smart Pick: West Coast +700

The horse that finished behind Accelerate has a big shot to take home the victory. After last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Gun Runner retired, West Coast became the best horse in the world.

He allowed Thunder Snow to get away with easy fractions when finishing second to that rival in the Dubai World Cup. West Coast sat on the bench for trainer Bob Baffert until doing all the early running in the Awesome Again. Even though Accelerate passed West Coast, he ran the much better race.

Baffert should have his star handicap horse ready to show his best on Nov. 3. If West Coast is at the top of his game, he’ll bury Accelerate, McKinzie, and pretty much any other horse in his way to Breeders’ Cup Classic glory.

Breeders’ Cup Longshot Pick: Roaring Lion +1400 

Sometimes, it’s as easy as going with the classiest equine in the race. Nothing says Roaring Lion should win the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He’s bred to be great on turf, sired by Kitten’s Joy and from a dam, Vionnet, who had success on grass. He’s trained by one of the top turf trainers in the world, John Gosden, for a racing outfit, Qatar Racing Ltd., that’s had major success in turf races.

But, Roaring Lion’s the classiest animal in the BC Classic. He’s won 4 straight Grade 1 races. Not only that, but he’s a Keeneland September graduate, meaning he was bred in Kentucky. That means he’s an American horse returning to his home nation after dominating overseas.

Roaring Lion is my surprise longshot pick to win the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic at +1400.

October's Must Bet Football Games

October’s Must Bet Football Games

The NFL and College Football seasons are heating up. With just over a week left in October, you have time to get your Halloween costume and several top football games on the calendar. Keep reading for more of October’s must bet football games.

October’s Must Bet Football Games

No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs -7 vs. No. 9 Florida Gators in Jacksonville
3:30 PM ET, Saturday, October 27th

The annual Georgia vs Florida rivalry has some extra juice this year. Both teams are tied atop the SEC East division with Kentucky. The Bulldogs are coming off a bye and favored by a touchdown which is surprising after Georgia’s 20-point loss to LSU two weeks ago.

Florida is 3-1 straight up over the last four head-to-head games versus Georgia. That record jumps to 7-3 against the spread in favor of the Gators over the previous 10.

No. 14 Washington State at No. 24 Stanford -3
7 PM ET, Saturday, October 27th

I could not have predicted a pair of top-20 teams from the Pac-12 will be squaring off in such an important game so late in the season.

Washington State is the only one-loss team remaining in the Pac-12. The Cougars are also the Pac-12’s last hope at sending a team to the college football playoffs. A win by Stanford kills that.

Philadelphia Eagles -3 at Jacksonville Jaguars in London
9:30 AM ET, Sunday, October 29th

Stand up if you have never been a fan of the super early NFL London games. But this week’s Eagles vs. Jags tilt in London looks like a winner for spectators, fans and bettors alike.

Since the international series began in 2007, the favored team has gone 17-5-1 straight-up and 14-9 ATS. Logic dictates to bet on the one field-goal favorite Eagles who make their first trip to London.

However, there is an exception to each rule. And the Jags are the exception this time. Jacksonville has been an underdog in three straight visits to London. They have not only covered the betting spread, but they’ve won all three games straight-up.

Denver Broncos at Kansas Chiefs -10
1 PM ET, Sunday, October 29th

Can anyone stop the Kansas City Chiefs? Betting on KC has been free money so far with payouts on seven straight covers by the Chiefs. That record goes to 11 ATS wins if you go back to last season.

The visiting Broncos are winless in their last six against KC. That includes a tilt earlier this year when the Chiefs won 27-23 covering as a 3.5-point favorite.

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers -8
1 PM ET, Sunday, October 29th

Since coming into the league in 2004, Big Ben has been money straight-up when facing Cleveland. He is 25-3-1 SU against the Browns. However, Cleveland has gone 16-12-1 against the spread in those 29 games. And more recently the Browns are 3-0-1 ATS against the Steelers. That tie was earlier this season when the two played to a 21-21 final in OT. The Steelers were favored by 3.5-points in that game.

Indianapolis Colts -3 -105 at Oakland Raiders
4:05 PM ET, Sunday, October 29th

Amari Cooper is a Cowboy now after Khalil Mack was traded during the preseason. Jon Gruden is rebuilding the Raiders in his image. He has stocked up THREE first round picks in the 2019 draft.

There’s more good news for Gruden is this week Oakland hosts the Colts who always struggle on the west coast. Indy is 0-4 straight-up and against the spread in its last four PST games.

Green Bay Packers -9 at Los Angeles Rams
4:25 PM ET, Sunday, October 29th

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have never been as big of underdogs as they are this week when they visit the NFL’s last undefeated team. The hometown Los Angeles Rams are 9-point home favorites to beat Rodgers. If the line stands, it will represent the largest betting spread by which Rodgers has been an underdog in his career.

The Rams are 4-2-1 against the spread and have been favored by at least 6.5 points in every game so far in 2018. Green Bay is 3-2-1 and coming off their bye. The Packers are 2-4 ATS and will enter the contest as underdogs for the third time this season. Green Bay fans are betting on the fact that Aaron Rodgers is 4-0 SU and ATS versus the Rams.

2018 WWE Evolution odds & betting tidbits

WWE Evolution All Woman PPV Odds

WWE Raw Women’s Championship

  • Ronda Rousey -900
  • Nikki Bella +500

The headline event features champion Ronda Rousey taking on Nikki Bella. Rousey and the Bellas were getting along until Nikki & Brie turned on Rousey at Raw following Super Showdown. Now the feud continues with the former UFC champ as the heavy favorite at -900.

Last Woman Standing Match – WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship

  • Becky Lynch -165
  • Charlotte Flair +125

The two superstars make history this Sunday when they compete in the first-ever Last Woman Standing Match. Flair is a slight favorite at +125, so this is any woman’s match.

Tag Team Match

  • Trish Stratus & Lita -390
  • Alexa Bliss & Mickie James +270

Trish Stratus was scheduled to face Alexa Bliss in a singles match while Lita was to go head-to-head against Mickie James. But the WWE brain-trust turned two singles bouts into a single smash-mouth tag team match. Stratus and Lita are favorites at -390.

    Ember Moon doesn’t win -420
